U S President Barack Obama Mocked For Wearing Taupe Suit In White House Address

US President addressed the situation in Ukraine and the Middle East, but all eyes were on his choice of suit.
Tongues are wagging over President Barack Obama’s audacity to wear taupe.

The sight of Obama discussing possible US military action in Syria in a light-colored suit lit up Twitter on Thursday, and the reviews of his unusual fashion choice were less than fashionable.
Many tweets poked fun at slogans that are closely associated with Mr Obama.


Mr Obama typically wears dark suits.

In 2009, he was panned for wearing “mom jeans” to throw the first pitch at the All-Star Game.
MrObama today admitted in the conference: “We don’t have a strategy yet” to confront the Islamic State (IS) as he poured cold water on the prospect of imminent US strikes against jihadists in Syria.
Despite weeks of American bombing missions against Sunni militants in Iraq, Mr Obama said that the White House had still not developed a broader plan for countering IS across the region.

While US drones are already carrying out surveillance in Syria, Mr Obama said that he was not ready to order strikes there and dramatically escalate America’s involvement in the conflict.

“I don’t want to put the cart before the horse. We don’t have a strategy yet,” Mr Obama said when asked whether he would seek Congressional approval for striking in Syria.
